Anyone have a Zoke 66 SL ATA or 888 SL ATA?

If you do. How many damn air chambers does this thing have? I easily find two but the manual shows another valve under the ATA knob; however, I can't seem to get teh ATA knob off.
I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.

THERE ARE 4
the left leg spring, the right leg spring, the bottom out, and the negitive air.

If i remember correct. left leg spring is in the top center, right leg air is offset top right, bottom out is in the center of right leg, and negitive air is in the bottom of the left. i think?

ohhhhh, now I am all confused. let me find my notes!!

ok, heres the scoop. on the 66
left top has 2 holes. off center is the positive air
left center is the negitive air
in the bottom of the left leg is the bottom out air valve
in the top of the right leg there is one hole. that is the right leg positive air. in the bottom of the right leg is the reboung clicker.

the pos air in the right and left leg are in different positions. dont get them mixed up. the adjustments are under the knob. find the allen screw in the side of the knob?

Hrm... Doesn't sound like my fork. I have the rebound clicker on the top right and the compression clicker on the bottom right. Top right I got a little aluminum screw that comes out by hand that has an air valve down in it. This screw also holds on the rebound clicker knob.

Grab the ATA cap and pull it straight off. There is an air valve under there... I swear.

Here'e the scoop...
There are THREE air chambers on this fork, two in the left leg and one in the right. The first chamber you must fill is the PAR chamber, located on the bottom of the left leg. It is covered by a black metal valve. **ALWAYS FILL THIS CHAMBER FIRST** You can use the recommended PSI on the sticker that is on your fork. If you are running anything less than 90psi in this chamber... (1)it's not enough. (2)you weigh less than 110 lbs. (3)your fork is not working properly so send it back.

The next chamber that needs to be filled is hidden under the ATA twist knob, located at the top of the left leg. Pull the knob off (it should pull straight off) and you'll see an air valve. Fill this up with the recommended PSI. Now try the fork and see how it feels in a 'parking lot' test.

There is one more valve on the top right leg. It is under the small twist cap found in the middle of your rebound knob. Unscrew this cap and you will see another air valve. This valve requires a Marzocchi valve adapter. Use it to fine tune your fork's sag. Most people put between 0-15 PSI.

Here's a reference point for you...
Rider Weight: 210lbs
PAR (bottom left): 145 PSI
Top left chamber: 85 PSI
Top RIGHT chamber: 5 PSI

Good Luck!

Cool thanks! I'm going to go pull on that knob. I was twisting with no lock.

A Marz tech told me to keep a difference of 30 PSI between the PAR and the ATA. Also he said nothing in the RC2 chamber.

I am 180lbs and this is what I run:

Par (bottom Left) 100PSI
ATA (top left) 70 PSI
RC2 (top right) 0-5 PSI

Good luck
